    I'm thinking about a rear, dual shock set up. Any ideas on how to mount the aditional shock?

    Just a few, more to come
    1 question.... why? I thought dual(or triple or quadruple) shocks died in the 90's

    Only time an extra shock is warranted is on a full on long travel truck where the additional shock allows for softer dampening to resist fade longer, or if a bypass is being added

    Are you trying to get a better ride or lessen the sag when you tow? Or both? Maybe airbags?

    @Relentless , you answered my question. never put two and two together when I saw it they're usually doubled up with long travel. I knew I was missing something. If I need to add any extra ass for towing, I'll do either airbags or helper springs.

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    IMO air bags would be a better choice for towing or heavy hauling... they can transfer the load to the axle better..

    Good to know. We haul often. When we do, it's w/ a full bed too. Also, plan on adding a topper.
